Review by John Delia

A gut wrenching suspense thriller, the film No Exit makes the audience spectators of a terrifying situation. With very good acting, direction and a perfectly twisted storyline this movie is faultless for fans that like to be stumped. Filled with surprises, No Exit shows the brilliance of novelist Taylor Adams from whose book, “No Exit”, the film was screen written. Read more…

THE KING’S MAN Now on 4K Blu-ray

Review by John Delia

If you thought the other two The King’s Man movies were good, it’s time to see the prequel. The film will make your head spin, not only because it’s in 4K home entertainment, but the action is relentless and during it we get to know how the special ops unit all began. Amazing cinematography, special effects and action throughout should blow you away, even in your living room. Some might have said that this prequel should not have been make, but that said this origin story works just as well a standalone. If you want thrills, interesting historical drama and non-stop adventure this film is your cup of British Tea. Read more…

“BUTTER” a Different Romantic Comedy

Review by John Delia

Not all films about bulling hit the nail on the head, but Butter has the ingredients to reach out to the audience most affected by the social aggressors. Nicely acted, this heartfelt story shows even the intelligent and talented are subjects of the unkindness. Although seemingly targeted to the teen to twenties, parents of students should also take heed. Read more…

“THE LEDGE” A Fast Paced Thriller

Review by John Delia

In the movie The Ledge, the writer takes very little time with character development and gets right down to the center of the “who what where and why.” Now you may get the impression that this may be problematic to the entertainment value, but you would be wrong as this fine production keeps you on edge to the gut wrenching finale.

Written Review By John Delia

Do you like a mystery film with a lot of twists and turns? For those who enjoy trying to crack a case before it’s all played out on the screen there’s Last Looks with a storyline that’s great for guessing right up to the exciting finale. The story is played out by some very good actors that meld into their characters extremely well and put on a good show. The story does get quite quirky however, so buckle up for a lot of brutal bruising. Read more…

“The Spine of Night” a Powerful Fantasy of Doom

Written Review by John Delia

A story of revenge, freedom from evil and a fight for existence, the animated action adventure film The Spine of Night is now available for home viewing in several formats including 4K. The fantasy level is pretty high here, but most followers of animated mysticism will eat it up. However be cautioned that the film does have an abundance of killing with visuals that are not for the meek. A quote from Gizmodo’s io9 sums it all up “One of the Sickest, Coolest, most Mind-Bending Animated films we’ve ever seen” Read more…

SUPERHOST a Psycho Thriller

Written Review by John Delia

Very different and incredibly psychotic the movie Superhost does a good job to entertain their fan base. The film features very good acting, interesting direction and a crew that’s phenomenal. Now that said, is the film perfect for at least 50% of mainstream audiences? My take is probably, especially those that need thrills and are not bothered by the gruesome scenes. Thrill seekers want to get an unexpected scare now and then to keep them glued to the screen and this film has several. Read more…

Written Review by John Delia

Although you do not have to watch the original Ice Age film that came out in 2001, the spinoff The Ice Age Adventures of Buck Wild will probably be a good time to introduce your youngsters to the several sequels that started it all. This episode is filled with laughter and exciting adventure for the target audience of early youth to ten years old. I like the way they introduced the new characters and that they kept the series on a level that should not be too disturbing to the very young. Read more…

Written Review by John Delia

If you enjoy films with a sinister plot, good acting and direction, Shattered should do the trick. It’s a devilish story with some nice twists to keep you off guard and a finale that may be kind of déjà vu, but don’t let it spoil your kinetic experience. Available in select theaters and some platforms for video on demand. Read more…

“Nightmare Alley” a Crime Thriller

Review by John Delia

What puts Nightmare Alley over the top is the excellent blend of acting, directing and cinematography. The storyline is morbid and sometimes terrifying as it weaves startling twists throughout the two and a half hours. That said, the element of predictability does creep in, but even though it still remains high as one of the best films for 2021.
